The Animal Hospital of North Asheville will be closed Monday, May 28th in observance of Memorial Day so our AHNA staff can spend time with loved ones. We will maintain normal hours before and after Memorial Day Weekend.
We regret to announce that AHNA will no longer continue our Sunday Emergency hour from 4:00PM to 5:00PM as of May 27th. We will continue to care for our non-critical hospitalized patients over the weekend.
With the warmer weather upon us, your feline friend might be asking to go outside and explore more than ever. Unfortunately, the freedom of outdoor exploration comes with a higher risk of injury from other animals including other cats. Over 90% of septic wounds in cats are caused by a cat bite during a cat fight. Dog, rat, raccoon and other animal bites are rarer but can also cause issues.
Spring is a beautiful time of year here in the mountains, but April showers and May flowers also bring pollen. Human allergy symptoms usually include sneezing, stuffy nose, and itchy eyes, but dogs often show their allergies with itchy skin symptoms known as atopic dermatitis or atopy.

We are excited that many of our awesome staff are helping raise donations to support Asheville Humane Society in the WNC's Pet of the Year Contest. The Animal Hospital of North Asheville and our super staff are proud supporters of the Asheville Humane Society (AHS). We are impressed by all the hard work, dedication, compassion and care that the Asheville Humane Society provides the community, not only by saving lives of homeless pets, but also by allowing time for pets to heal physically and emotionally before they find their forever homes.
